Mika and her husband have two daughters Emilie and Carlie Hoffer. They later divorced in 2016. However, in early 2017 Brzezinski became engaged to her co-host Joe Scarborough. Although MSNBC “Morning Joe” hosts Mika and Joe Scarborough have been dating for some time now, they are yet to come public about their affair.

Joe Scarborough And Mika Brzezinski

Joe and Mika have hosted the morning show together since 2007. Their off-air relationship had been the source of rumors but they are now engaged.

The couple described how their relationship evolved in an interview in Vanity Fair. Brzezinski explained in a magazine that over the past year and a half she realized she had to face these feelings and that it was time to stop putting them in a box, she continued to explain that it was not easy to process and it was not an easy set of decisions for either of the. It was something she couldn’t deny anymore.

Scarborough who has been married twice before also told Vanity Fair that he thought he would “never ever do this again in a million years.”Then it occurred to me that with us working together and being live on the air every day for three hours that we were forced, no matter what disagreements we had, what misunderstandings we had, to work through it and get right with each other by 5:59 a.m.,” he said.

They have never publicly discussed their romantic relationship. In April that when Mr. Scarborough told the Hollywood Reporter that “we have a crackling on-air chemistry, and crackling off-air chemistry, too.”

Mika Brzezinski And Joe Scarborough Wedding

Mika and the stars of “Morning Joe,” Joe Scarborough tied the knot at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on November 24, 2018. The engagement was officiated by US Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, a Maryland Democrat.

The MSNBC co-hosts as well the pair had their engagement 18 months ago. But they didn’t play up the news on their morning show. Nor will they be talking about the wedding anytime soon: An MSNBC spokeswoman had confirmed that the pair will be off the show all week.

The pair has been sitting together on the set of “Morning Joe” for 10 years. Almost the entire time, gossip has swirled off-set and online about whether the two are more than just colleagues. For a long time, they dismissed that chatter and said they were just friends. Scarborough was divorced in 2013. Brzezinski was divorced in 2016.

They began dating in early 2017. And in May of that year, they confirmed the engagement. According to Vanity Fair, the pair sought to keep Saturday’s ceremony private.

“We wanted it to be really small and simple and not what you expected from Mika and Joe,” Brzezinski told the magazine.
The vows took place “in front of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights,” Vanity Fair reported, which “makes sense now more than ever,” Brzezinski said, “given what we stand for as a couple, and what we’re worried about as a country.”

Mika Brzezinski MSNBC

Mika is the co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe and the author of three best-selling books. She appears as co-host and newsreader on MSNBC’s morning program Morning Joe, alongside Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist. In January 2010 Mika’s memoir All Things At Once became a New York Times bestseller.

Knowing Your Value, which examines the role of women in the workplace and is her second book, reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller list for business books in 2011. Obsessed: America’s Food Addiction and My Own was her third book. It debuted on the bestseller list in the spring of 2013.

Mika Brzezinski Trump

 Mika made a failed attempt on Monday, May 27, 2019 morning to rile up her “Morning Joe” panel to bash President Trump on a segment dedicated to Memorial Day.

In the segment, Mika started by asking the “reflections” of MSNBC commentator Mike Barnicle by invoking Trump’s deployment of troops at the southern border.

“I want to ask you what your reflections are during this time in terms of our attitudes in America, our knowledge and our understanding of people who serve in the military, who serve multiple tours of duty, who have taken part in wars on behalf of this country, and also, are being deployed by this President by — let’s say maybe perhaps controversial means in terms of their deployments at the southern border for caravans that are coming in. It’s a convoluting time, is it not?” Mika said.

Trump lashed out Thursday, June 28 2017 at the appearance and intellect of Mika Brzezinski, a co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” drawing condemnation from his fellow Republicans and reigniting the controversy over his attitudes toward women that nearly derailed his candidacy last year.

He described Ms.Mika as “Low I.Q. Crazy Mika” and claimed in a series of Twitter posts that she had been “bleeding badly from a face-lift” during a social gathering at Mr. Trump’s resort in Florida around New year’s Eve. There was no explanation of what had prompted the outburst, but the spokeswoman said Ms. Brzezinski deserved a rebuke because of her show’s harsh stance on Mr. Trump.

These tweets ended five months of relative silence from the president on the volatile subject of gender, reintroducing a political vulnerability: his history of demeaning women for their age, appearance, and mental capacity.
